Holders Crash Out as Mourinho Prepares for the Run In

It was very predictable in the end. Manchester United clinging on to avoid embarrassment at Stamford Bridge staring at the prospect of only their third defeat since late October - a result that would deny them a fifth trip to Wembley in under a year. United fielded a back three for the second game in row - probably just the second time in Mourinho's managerial career stretching roughly across 800 odd games in all competitions. With Rashford and Mkhitaryan playing …

Clash of Giants - on small stage: Liverpool vs Man United

Clash of Giants - on small stage: Liverpool vs Man United

It’s the greatest fixture in the English footballing calendar reduced to the sorriest of stages. By rights, Liverpool should play Manchester United in the Champions League even if neither are champions. Manchester United should host Liverpool with the world to play for rather than Europe’s runners up trophy. Liverpool and Manchester United should be playing in League deciders rather than scrabbling in the bowels of the Europa League. As The Blow Monkeys once observed, it doesn’t have to be that …
Jordon Ibe: The Case of Lost Identity

Jordon Ibe: The Case of Lost Identity

Football can be a really cruel game at times. We have seen youngsters who are chased by massive clubs with multi-million dollar contracts disappear into footballing obscurity. We know we will be too pessimistic to label young Jordon Ibe into that category, but the Englishman has been abysmal whenever presented an opportunity. Many believed that the departure of Sterling to Manchester City would present Ibe with an opportunity to establish himself at Liverpool. However, it has not gone according to …

Despite Van Gaal’s summer …

Home side Crystal Palace have effectively nothing left to play for other than personal pride, whereas Manchester United were desperately seeking points in order to consolidate a precious fourth position above chasing Liverpool. And so at Selhurst Park, the two sides played out a sloppy, high tempo affair that resulted in the away side pulling out the win despite a major scare. Pre match, there were a few …
Delight in Pellegrini's Plight Ignores First Season Success

Delight in Pellegrini's Plight Ignores First Season Success

Where now for Manchester City? Runners up in the Community Shield, out of both domestic cups in the fourth round, seemingly out of the title race, and now out of the Champions League at the hands of a Barcelona side who rarely looked troubled by City’s high earning stars. The future looks bleak for their manager, but if the target of five trophies in five years is to be believed, then he just might be given the chance to turn …
